Weʼre raising £100,000 to support Alex and Joella's medical treatment costs and bring them home safe.
Don't have time to donate right now?
Once again both families are so appreciative of all the donations and support that have been received since starting the page. Everyone's generosity has been amazing and they can't thank you all enough. The donations have truly made a difference and contributed towards Alex & Joella's improvement of health to get them fighting fit.
For those who aren't aware, our good friends Alex & Joella were involved in a road accident out in Bali and have since gone through a gruelling road to recovery from life threatening injuries that have seen them both in intensive care with multiple injuries to spine, collar bone, jaw, arms as well as internal injuries most notably to the lungs, which has also resorted in Alex being in a coma for 2 weeks.
We are heading just over a month since the accident happened, and the good news is both Alex and Joella are fully focused on getting back on the mend. For Alex, since having a major operation to repair his lung and spine he has hit a huge milestone! The other day he was able to stand up for the first time since the accident which is unbelievable! Mandy is a trained physio so is the perfect woman for the job to help get Alex back on his feet. Since standing up for the first time Mandy has also been helping him walk short distances and has tasked Alex to try being sat out of his bed for 1/2 hour stints at a time. All of this is to help prepare him for an eventual flight back home in the coming weeks. Alex still has multiple operations which need to be done however they are hoping to get him fit enough to fly so that he can complete his recovery back in the UK.
Joella has been doing amazing and is now back in the UK! It was hard to tear them both apart however for Joella there is still a long road to recovery with multiple hospital visits and specialists to be seen in the UK to aide her own recovery so it has been vital to make the trip back. Joella as always has kept a positive mindset with a smile on her face and remaining up beat for both her and Alex. They have been face timing daily and counting down the days to be back together again.
We can't believe the generosity of everyone and never envisaged we could raise this amount which has truly been life changing for them both. The final mission is getting Alex back on a plane home. Currently the family are negotiating medical repatriation which is very costly but the best option to continue his recovery and get him back to his nearest and dearest. So every last push with donations and support will be helping go towards getting Alex back on a plane safely and hopefully on the final leg of his journey to recovery.
Thanks again for everyone's support. X
